Health professionals have all undergone specific clinical training in theory and practice to meet the standards required by their particular health specialism. The Department for Health is working with health and care partners to establish a more collaborative, multi-professional and multidisciplinary approach to planning the work force.
Early Education and Childcare Workforce
The government commissioned Professor Cathy Nutbrown to investigate the qualifications of the workforce as part of an independent review. The final review, Foundations for Quality, was published in June 2012 and is available here.
The government has also asked CWDC to review the Early Years Professional Status standards.
All those involved in delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage need to be clear that, regardless of their role, they are teaching children to develop their cognitive, behavioural, physical and emotional capabilities that will in turn support children to be ready for school and future learning opportunities.
We are all learners – what are you doing to further your learning about working in the foundation years?
